Sweet dreams

I'm finishing off my month of sponsorship at Outlawz Sketch with this little bit of inspiration.

This little cutie is Morpheus.  He's been coloured with ProMarkers and I've added some black polychromos pencil to give the shadows more depth.
Here's our sketch for today


The papers are black card stock and Lemoncraft.

I've used Spellbinders dies and Marianne Design dies and a paper flower in the middle of the two paper swirls.

Little black gems and some green enamel dots complete the look.

Hope you like my inspirations for today - hope to see you over at the challenge

Jo's Daffodils

I so enjoyed creating this.  A guy who my hubby works with wanted a card for his wife's 60th birthday.  He loved the simplicity of my freesias image and card.  He asked if I could create one with daffodils, her favourite flower.  I just sent him the photo of the finished card this morning and he love it!


I've coloured this image with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  The commission was for a CAS style card.  the sentiment created at the time of printing the image.

I've finished the card by doing a little biro doodling, adding a couple of sequins and a scattering of gems

Hope you all love my new image

Blue hues

We're half way through the Blue challenge on the blog.  It's reminder day and I though for a change I'd stick with the theme :D


I've coloured Bella with ProMarkers adding a little black polychromos pencil for extra depth in the shading.  I've also added a pink glitter heart from Paperchase next to her.
The image and design papers from Maja Design and Joy Crafts have been distressed.  Also before I mounted in onto the backing paper I distressed the edges of the image with Milled Lavender distress ink from Tim Holtz.

I've hardly used any embellishments on this card, only a few gems and a wood chip love heart.

Hope to see you at the challenge

Virgo

I managed to find some time today to make Virgo into a card.  This is a new image just released at SheepSki Designs - you can find it in my shop here.


This image was coloured with Copics and I've added a little black polychromos pencil for added depth

Just making her into a CAS card I've embellished the card with a few rhine stones, a sequin and a little biro doodling.

That's all folks sweet and simple

Pretty parasol

It's new sketch day at Outlawz :D

I'm sponsoring our sketch team for August.  This image I'm using today is Becca you can find her here on Etsy.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers, cut her out with a Spellbinders die and used some antique linen distress ink from Tim Holts on the edges.
Here's our sketch for this week


I've used design papers from Joy Crafts and some black card stock.  The banners were cut using off cuts of papers and a La La Land Die.

Embellishments of pearls, some paper flowers and wooden hearts are my finishing touches.

Hope you like my creation for today - love to see you at the sketch challenge.

Just a Little Bit Alice

Lizzy has an amazing new release today - all is themed Alice in Wonderland - check out the blog for inspiration and find her images here on Etsy.

Don't forget to use DTANDREA10 to get yourself 10% off these fantastic images :D
I've combined two images for this card image 324 is Alice and image 325 is the White Rabbit


I've created a CAS card to showcase the images.  I've used ProMakers to do this and a little black polychromos to add extra depth to the shading.

All I've added to this one is a little biro to frame the card.

Hope you love my creation - check out my second post for the Queen of Hearts :D
